    I meant to mention that AND the "as is -- no refunds" stipulation.

    One of the few times I actually hope the bids are from shills...

    If you look at the bid history, the first bid was legit. This mystery new buyer was the only one who bid until he hit $7000. Smells entirely phoney to me esp with the wire transfer only.

    Whoa. That's just crazy.

    I held a Galil in 308 back in 1999, was a private face to face seller, he wanted about $2500 for it at the time (this was during the original AWB). Too rich for my blood at the time.

    I can't believe they are going for that much now, when there is NOT an assault weapons ban in effect.

    I just looked around GB. It seems like things may be leveling out? I saw some insane asking prices on AK mags but not many overpriced bids. there were some overpriced guns (like a WASR at $1300) but they seemed to be the exception rather than the rule.
    I was also looking at prices for the SKS-M. thought they'd be higher. Most seem to be in the $500-$700 range. No big shakes there.

    Work has kept me too busy this week to do any substantial update.. and I've spent a lot of time in the basement reloading. :)

    I'll try to get another update done tomorrow across the board.

    I thought it might be until today.

    I've been using the Colt AR-15 6920 as a yardstick, and up until yesterday, prices -- which had climbed to near $3000 (that's sold price, ended auction) -- had steadily dropped down to $2000.

    Today, several multi-bid auctions are near ending at the $2500 mark.

    I think there was an initial panic buy; it settled a bit as the first wave was satisfied and prices went down some; lot of gun stores closed a few days for New Years and then inventory, reopened and all the waiting buyers saw there's virtually nothing left and are driving the prices back up.

    Sub-2000s (my other yardstick), are following a similar curve.

    Going to be spring, perhaps summer for this to normalize -- and that's only assuming the ban talk diminishes.

    Well I finally did it. I put my DPMS up for sale. It went for $1400 which I believed was a fair price even though it was used. I also included 4 aluminum 30 round mags and 60 rounds of ammo. Took it to the gun shop and it sold within 2 hours.

    Guitar is a higher passion of mine than guns though I love shooting, this last year and a half I used my spending money on a strat, 3 Marshall amps and some pedals and I don't regret it but what I regret within it is not getting a Saiga and a newer post ban M1A standard back then, now I can't bring myself to buy it at the recent pricing. Besides that no ammo to be found at a decent price to feed them anyway meh....

    Well, the Elcan DR really does bump the value. Seriously -- that's some sexy and expensive optics there.

    Uhh... $1500 for AR lowers?

    Yeah, so they're Larue. Big deal. They hold parts together just like the rest. :)

    I'm filing this under "Yougottabekiddingme."

    At these prices I'm tempted to disassemble my AR-15's, sell the lowers, buy 80% receivers and mill them out for my own selfish purposes (as they'd lack serial #'s and there'd be no documentation).

    "These are not the assault rifles you are looking for"...

    What this guys said...........the lower truly does just hold crap. It holds the FCG and the magazine......no nead for a super high speed lower.
    People are just retarded.

    While I would like to believe that things are getting better I know they are not. I was looking for reloading dies and they are now out if stock.

    If my AR15 build gets completed at the local gunshop in the next month I may unload my Saiga .223 16" with six high capacity magazines. I'm not taking less than $1,500 for what cost me a total of about $400 (bought the Saiga used for $250 years ago).

    I should feel bad but I won't, most of these folks who are buying now were probably democrat supporters. I'm also thinking of unloading an old Romanian SKS rifle with a thousand rounds of 7.62x39, for $800.

    Sorry got to fund my projects in case the AWB goes through and if it doesn't I could have $2,300 for fun purchases in nine months when this all settles down.:evil:

    So far this panic isn't so bad. I still remember SKS's selling for $99 in the Shotgun News in 94 and then 2 weeks later selling for $400. 4x as much. Same thing happened to Ak47's. Remember when they were $239 and then went to $850-1000? Right now AR's are $800 or so at Walmart. 4x as much would be $3200. I saw some for $2000 the other day at the gunshow. So only 2.5 times what they were a few weeks ago. So I don't think a full panic is on yet actually.

    Another example. I saw SKS's by the crate full at a shop in TN about 4 weeks ago. Wanted $389 each. 4x that would be $1550. I know most people don't believe it is possible...yet...but if Congress starts debating on some serious ban in the next couple of weeks...or actually passes one....then these prices right now are going to seem like bargains.

    I just realized last night when I went to work up 300 Win Mag ladder loads, I'm nearly out of Large Rifle Magnum primers (have 200 left). I stocked up on LR, LP, SR, SP, SR Benchrest, SR Military (CCI), and CCI No 35 Arsenal primers (for 50 BMG)... But I forgot all about my WLRM! 10 years of adding primers to the pile and I neglect the ones that I was short on.

    Hoarding fail.

    What dropped prices on guns during the last ban was the removal of "evil features" and the resumption of making new--"streamlined"--semi autos. Once people realized they could still buy an AR15 just without a bayonet lug and flash hider, but still capable of shooting 30rds out of the left over mags out there, the prices on all guns fell back. Then you had designations like "preban" and "postban" becoming important.

    Dems aren't going to make that mistake again. They left an "out" in their legislation that allowed manufacturers to keep making the most vital part of an "assault weapon"--the ability to shoot lots of bullets quickly from a hi capacity magazine. The next legislation will not have 3 or more evil features. It will have 1. Can this weapon fire from a detached magazine of greater than 10 rounds? Yes? Then it's banned. There won't be any reduction in rifle prices because all the rifles out there will be the "last ones ever". For comparison, look at the prices on machine guns in the Class III camp. I'm sure there were guys who use to say, "No one would ever pay $4000 for a Sten gun!" They do now though. Why is that? Because no new ones are being made.
